From kindergarden on I have always considered Charles a dear friend. He was always friendly. We both played cornet in the band and were in a couple school plays together. Anita, Jeff, Jill and Beth, he was a genuinely nice man. I know he will be missed terribly. Markie

Dear Anita,

I am so sorry to hear about your great loss. I remember Chuck from years back, growing up in Conover and Eagle River...he was such a nice guy. I still treasure the memories of Zimp's for lunch in the 50's......

I was so sad to hear of Chuck's passing. I loved his sense of humor. He was one of the kindest men I know. Even though I haven't seen him in person for a few years, I will miss his presence. Anita & family, my condolences & prayers are sent your way.

Chuck was one of my best childhood friends. We started in kindergarden and stuck together until we graduated from high school. I will always treasure the true friendship we had. Many were the hunting and fishing expeditions we had, and many of the days I spent in his basement when he was building something.
Although we have been apart for many years, there is still a great hole in my heart. Terry
